Following a sentence in the UK, Boris Becker goes for Germany.
The six-time Grand Slam winner from Germany, 55, has completed a prison term related to his 2017 bankruptcy.
According to his lawyer, former tennis great Boris Becker has left for Germany after being released from a British prison where he served a sentence associated with his 2017 bankruptcy.
The six-time Grand Slam winner from Germany, 55, "was released from detention in England and has left for Germany today," according to a statement from his Berlin-based attorney Christian-Oliver Moser on Thursday.
Becker "served his time and is not subject to any criminal limitations in Germany," he continued.
Becker's arrival location was not disclosed by Moser, who also stated that any demands for interviews "would not be answered."
Becker, a German national, violated insolvency laws by concealing assets and loans totaling $3.1 million (2.5 million pounds) in order to avoid paying obligations, and was sentenced to two and a half years in prison in April.
He was declared bankrupt in June 2017 and owed creditors 62 million pounds ($50 million) for a loan that was not repaid on his Mallorca estate, which was more than three million pounds ($3.7 million).
Becker, who has resided in the UK since 2012, was informed by a judge at Southwark Crown Court in south London that he would serve half of his term in prison. He was nevertheless let go on Thursday morning.
At first, Wandsworth Prison in southwest London—close to the All England Club at Wimbledon, where Becker won three championships—was said to have been housing Becker.
He was subsequently moved to the lower-security Huntercombe prison for foreign prisoners awaiting deportation, which is located close to Oxford in southern England.
Becker met the criteria for removal since he is not a citizen of the United Kingdom and was given a prison term of more than 12 months.
